Dark Tales: Edgar Allan Poe's The Fall of the House of Usher is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Poe Stories Always Provide Great Psychological Fun I have read the book and saw the original movie many years ago. It was so creepy back then, given I was much younger. I have since enjoyed all the Poe books and movie adaptations. However my favorites have always been the dark, sad poems. I was delighted to find these games on Big Fish, although they are very lightly based on the novels. Really had fun with this one, it was challenging and included many wonderful HOGs and puzzles. The graphics were stellar and rich with appropriate items and design for that time period along with perfect coloring. It added so much to the experience. Detective Dupin certainly was a nice addition, which is always the case. The story had a suitable ending. This was a quality purchase and I am looking forward to playing all the other Dark Tales games. Yep, I went overboard and purchased all of them !! I don't think I will be disappointed. Hopefully you have fun with The Fall of the House of Usher, too ! By the way, the are a couple of cute little games VERY loosely based on this Poe story. Check out "The House on Usher" for some different fun on this subject. God Bless Everyone !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from one of the best HOG games ever!! I am usually hopeless when it comes to hidden object games. This game has everything you could want in a game. If you are like me and find hidden object games to hard at times , this might be the game for you as it also has a type of match 3 game you can play instead. Great story line and visual effects. The game was a lot longer than other hidden object games I have tried to play. Anyone thinking of buying this game wont be disappointed. 10 out of 10 Big Fish!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Edgar Allen Poe games. I really like all the Dark Tales Edgar Allen Poe games. I buy games that have great graphics and color and detail and all of the Edgar Allen Poe games do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A little bit of... ...a deliciously dark tale. A little bit of weird, intriguing and eerie. I was really in the mood for this, and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm lovin' the Fall - of the House - of the Ushers I've been a fan of BFG games, since I received a free coupon for Ravenhurst in a Woman's Day magazine about 6 years ago. I was in my 60's then and had never played a "computer game," and I was instantly hooked! Still enjoy them, and The Fall of the House of Usher is a great game. I especially like the interaction in the HO scenes, and I found the puzzles fascinating, both in their appearance in the game, and the difficulty I had in solving several of them. I really think BFG might consider having all reviewers state their approximate ages, ie., under 20, 20 to 35, 36 to 50, etc. because I can read some of the very negative reviews and am likely to discount them if they seem to be written in a teen-age snit - so to speak! A review is, after all, only a personal opinion, not a blanket hatred of any game! Detective Dupin and I have enjoyed the Fall of Usher because it requires some thought as to what to do next, and the puzzles were well thought out. In MHO, this is a great game!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much Better Than "Gold Bug" This game was much longer and much better than Dark Tales, the Gold Bug. Really had fun with this one. Not a huge number of HOS's, which is fine with me. Puzzles were fairly good, but some were a little too easy. I always like the music in ERS games, and this is no exception. The game was quite long. I got my money's worth. ERS is still right up there with Eipix for my favorite developers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SUPERB This is a superb game with outstanding voice overs, crisp graphics, sound and logical but complex nonlinear gameplay, plenty to do and see. Compelling music and cutscenes. HOS are only mildly crowded - I like the clue-driven object finds. There are alternative games to play in lieu of the HOS. Puzzles are many and vary widely in difficulty. This is one Poe book I didn't read - it's mysterious, fascinating and a little scary of what comes next. Visual and sound effects are easily award winners. This may well be the best Edgar Allan Poe game from ERS to date, which says a lot. They outdid themselves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The House That Makes You Homesick! I don't like to brag, but Detective Dupin has once again asked for my services to help solve the case of the Usher Twins! Madeleine Usher is nowhere to be found and because of this, Roderick is becoming ill. Dr. Morris has filled us in a bit, it would seem that the Usher twins, Madelein and Roderick, share a physical bond, when one of the twins is injured the other will feel this same pain, to the point of physical impossibility, if one is given a vaccination they both bleed! As we investigate further we learn that both twins have a rare illness, even stranger is the fact that whenever they leave the estate they become deathly ill, and must return immediately. Estelle has been caring for the twins since their mother died giving birth, but she doesn't even seem upset that Madeleine is missing so for now we must keep a suspicious eye on this mysterious lady. A few things have changed with this latest edition of Dark Tales, the graphics are still beautiful, but it seems a bit on the cartoonish side to me, it's not bad just different. There is a new addition of a rat on a perch to the left of the screen. I must admit I found it entertaining when he fell off the perch or drug a huge sunflower seed up to nibble on, but, the purpose of this rat is an unsolved mystery to both Detective Dupin and myself Detective pennmom36! The journal and map are located just behind the rat so perhaps he is standing guard. Roderick has given us a code handed down from his Grandfather and naturally we know how to solve this ancient riddle and find "the Reborn One" who is able to turn anything made of stone into reality. I'm pretty sure the reborn one isn't in Edgars version, and again why didn't anyone freak out when the stone crows came to life and took over the foyer? The hidden object games were fantastic and genuinely fun. The first HOS was actually in riddle form. Every item to be found was put in the form of a riddle one at a time such as what has several arms and only one leg with the answer being a fork. There were also regular list items, slightly interactive such as putting a sugar cube into a cup of tea to make sweet tea, and there were HOS that required you to find 12 feathers for example. The mini games are very easy such as matching up alike doves on a gate but the one I liked the best was training the mouse in a series of mazes. The first maze was simple just guiding the mouse from the starting point to the end and the second maze added keys of different colors so you had to guide the mouse to the green key and through the green door then get the blue key and exit out of the blue door and the third and final maze added some swinging doors that would trap you into a gridlock with the key behind a shut door. You have to tinker with it a bit by opening certain paths that would allow you to keep the door to the key open. There is also a series of photos that you discover with a partial message on the back and you need to place these photos into their natural place to reveal something not seen before. This is a great Edgar Allen Poe adaptation into a great Hidden Object Adventure, enjoy!
